Dear John, Thank you so much for all your hard work! You were an absolute pleasure to work with. You made everything so easy and your awesome attitude and charisma sis not go unnoticed by us or our guests! We could not have asked for a better photographer. It was like having a friend hang out with us all day! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the memories. - Sidney & Henry

John Yoo is a Vancouver-based photographer with an affinity for edgy and cool vibes. While you can often find him capturing weddings, we are admittedly having a love affair with his clever editorials and behind the scenes shots at Vancouver fashion events.

Ross + Tina (Newly Weds Couple, Hycroft Wedding, Vancouver BC)
John! Thank you so so much for the photos. We're still recovering from how beautiful they are and how they captured the day so amazingly. One of the best compliments I can give you is that we we're looking at one and said "this is what they'll show at our 50th anniversary". From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

It was a pleasure meeting you at the Morley wedding in Nanaimo, John. Such attention to detail, improvisation and enthusiasm. First class all the way, and a wholehearted endorsement to anyone considering a wedding or event photographer!

John is truly an AMAZING and super TALENTED photographer! When we first contacted him we knew right away that he was the right person to shoot our wedding. His passion for photography and artistic vision beautifully captured and displayed every memory we shared on our special day! We felt so lucky to find him and have him as our photographer. Not only he is talented but we also adore his friendly personality and professionalism. Through out our stressful wedding process, John always made sure we were on the same page and even helped us envision the concept for our wedding photos . When we told him that we were getting married at the Teahouse in Stanley park, he checked out the venue beforehand to find the perfect spots to shoot our photos. He always goes the extra mile to accommodate and meet each and every request we had. He is also gifted when interacting with the guests and definitely made them feel comfortable in front of his camera. All our guests at our wedding loved him so much and they still talk about him. And not to mention, he made us feel very relaxed and at ease that we definitely enjoyed our wedding a lot and our photos look FANTASTIC!! 
Overall our experience with John was EXCELLENT we can't even fully describe how blessed we feel with words!! When it came to the end of our wedding, we felt like we found a good friend :)
If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, we HIGHLY recommend John Yoo! His works are beautiful and his natural talent will make your wedding extra special and unique! We can't wait to book John again for our future events :D  -Love, Yunjee + James

I was worried about having a destination wedding because of quality of photos. I wanted to bring my own phototagraph but I was worried their would be weird awkward moments. I prepared my self for this. There was NOT one awkward moment with John! John is a chameleon! He blend in very well! He got along with our reserved group and our rowdy group while staying professional! I never once had to be worried about where John was for the whole week we traveled with him.  Everything was very natural witch I loved! He worked around us and knew when to step a side for family moments. Loved the photos! Loved how professional he was! Loved having him travel with us! Loved his personality and hanging out with him!

John Yoo will make sure your wedding photos come out beautifully by ensuring everyone in your party is relaxed and having a great time. He is such a great personality and an even better talent!

Charlotte T (Destination Engagement Photoshoot, HongKong, China)
All the pictures look super amazing! John is such a passionate photographer with so much talent plus he is super patient witch makes the whole shoot fun and energetic. I and Ray couldn't have asked for a more fun engagement shoot.

Karen T (Destination Engagement Photoshoot, HongKong, China)
We just shared the engagement photos with our family during dinner time and they LOVED it. All of them said that John did a real good job. They can tell that you are very patient and passionate of what you are doing! Jay and I are so happy to meet you and it is definitely one of the highlights of our trip back home. Well done John!!!

Sandra H (Groom's Grand-mother, Wedding Photography, Vancouver BC)
Your heart and soul is in the pictures you take. 

Mika Ishizaki (MakeUp Artist, Vancouver Fashion Week, Vancouver BC)
John is a force to be reckoned with, because this one man show pairs his incredible creative vision with the dreams of his clients and creates magic. His constant positivism, humour, and energy is infectious and necessary when you are working a long day on set or have to maintain a high level of energy on a special day. His images are natural and raw, but also edgy and editorial. It's difficult to find someone who can pull that off, and he does it easily and with a smile.

Alyssa + Dustin (Bride & Groom, Loft at Earls Wedding, Yaletown Vancouver BC)
John did an amazing job documenting our day. We knew from the moment we met him, he would be the photographer for us. His documentary style is beautiful and we love our photos so much. We completely forgot John and his assistant were there in the best way possible - they blended in and we felt like they were friends by the end of the night. John really went above and beyond and we are so happy we trusted him to document one of the best and most important days of our lives!
